Photo of Ling Cod in Kelp   

This painting is based on a reference photo taken just off Little River beach in Mendocino. It was a calm, sunny day in about 20 feet of water - using natural light. Though not closely related to either ling or cod, the name "lingcod" originated because it somewhat resembles those fish. Click on the photo on the left to view a larger image of my original photo.
